Upper Darby's Brooke Jones, right, celebrates with teammate Lexie Witmer in a game earlier this season. Jones came through with the walk-off single in the bottom of the eighth inning Friday.

Brooke Jones’ run-scoring single in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted Upper Darby to a 6-5 nonleague victory over Bonner & Prendergast.
